Hipmunk's mission is to make planning travel intuitive and effortless, and to give our users the confidence that they are making the best decisions. Our site and mobile apps save frequent travelers time by comparing top travel sites so they don't have to. The unique display makes it easy to visually compare results and decide on the best option. Hipmunk offers the most comprehensive travel search, bringing in travel options ranging from commercial flights to trains to charter flights and accommodations ranging from large hotels to home and apartments rentals through AirBnB. 

 

We have a close-knit, high-standards team with challenging work to do! We make beautiful experiences at scale, and have lots of data to dig through. We value being a top-notch engineering organization with the best people and environment, and take pride in our code. We were acquired by Concur in 2016, but we're still an independent company with our own engineering organization and product development process.

 

We value being a top-notch engineering organization, and have the same high standards with our code and people.  Because we value learning and growth, we invest regular time in pushing ourselves.  For example, once a quarter, we all participate in Foo Week--open time for you to spend time becoming a better engineer.  Whether that be a new technology you want to learn, an online class you want to take, or a fun side project you want to work on, how you spend that week is up to you!

 

Our stack is built on Python, Redis, PostgreSQL, ElasticSearch, HAProxy and a few more things.

Job Description:

On the Backend Platform team, you will be responsible for the main services that power the Hipmunk experience, such as our partner integrations that return travel results, process monitoring, database and data-access layer, logging, A/B testing, and heaps more. You will be working on a fast-paced team with many stakeholders, and you'll have exposure to almost every part of the organisation.
